When Mother’s Day arrives on May 9 will you be ready?
Will you be presenting mom, grandma, your wife, or whoever is the most important woman in your life with the same old gift of breakfast in bed, or a fuzzy bathrobe?
While these things are wonderful presents, maybe it’s high time you do something a little different, something off the beaten path, out of the ordinary, unique, unusual.
Yes, make this Mother’s Day super memorable for your mom who has had an impact on your life.
Like what? What’s unique? What’s cool and different?
Well, here are 8 unique ways to spend Mother’s Day this year to help you get started in your efforts to make Mom’s Day truly remarkable.
1. Take her hot air ballooning
Most cities have hot air balloon companies that would be more than happy to take your mom along with you and other family members high above the clouds on a sunny day. Be sure to start checking around now as these places get busy fast.
2. Take her to a DIY ceramics place
Here she can make a plate, a mug, a sculpture, and paint it herself the way she wants.
If you want to be unique hire a personal chef to come into her home and prepare a full feast or show her some cool cooking skills she’s wanted to learn over the years.
If your mom likes wine pick her up and take her for some wine tastings in your neighborhood.
5. Flowers, fruit more
Ask mom if she’d like to go pick flowers, fruits, and veggies. Most cities have “u-pick ‘em farms.”
6. Be creative, be a wordsmith
Sit down and write mom a long letter (or sit her down and tell her verbally) as to why you love her and what she means to you. Either frame it or hand it to her on a pretty piece of stationary. It’s coming from the heart so it truly will be a one-of-a-kind gift.
7. To the Moon
For $29.99 you can buy her an acre on the moon, and she’ll feel like she’s just gone to outer space without ever leaving the house. Put up some outer space-themed party décor in her house to complete the theme.
8. Get her a pet
Go to an animal shelter and let mom pick out a dog, cat, or rabbit. She’ll love the idea of having a new four-legged friend she picked out herself and saved at the same time. Look up your local animal shelters or humane society and make an appointment before you go.
Do It Up!
Mother’s Day only comes once a year so be sure you honor mom with something that means a lot and a gift she can savor year-round.
